WATG Referee Pitty
Other people running the Wings Around the Globe
Roper is the Wings Around the Globe referee.
This irascible race official pitty delivers the rules for the North American Wings Around the Globe time trials with a matter-a-fact personality and a wry sense of humor. In fact, Roper never misses an opportunity to offer his own take on the events that unfold. With sly remarks and colorful commentary, Roper is funny but firm in his dealings with the race and the racers.
"That airplane needs some help; y'all know that, right?"
"Aww man, that's nasty!"
